My wife and I were on a cruise two years ago to Bermuda on this ship and we had a good time and liked the ship and the crew. We went with the owners of our dance studio who went on there honeymoon with 24 other dancers. The largest dance ... Read more

We chose this cruise for two reasons-- because of getting to spend 5 full days in NYC prior to the cruise, and getting to finally see and experience the Breakaway! This was our 8th cruise, all but one on NCL (various ships). We ... Read more

We had a fantastic time. This cruise visited most of the ports We were looking for. Our cabin was a very nice size (although it was only me and my best friend and it was a family stateroom) we weren't tripping over each other. We had ... Read more

Food, service, people all great! Casino is a bit tight with payouts.... The staff was excellent, toga party a bit different. Wish we were made more aware of all the onboard activities in advance. Had everything book pre-cruise so we missed ... Read more

I rated this in the middle because we had a great time in spite of one of the most poorly managed and poorly designed ship we have cruised. Embarkation was great but disembarkation was a nightmare. They allow you to choose the time ... Read more

I've written a lot below to hopefully help answer some of the questions we had as first-timers. This was our first cruise with Norwegian and we were very impressed with everything about the Getaway which was built in 2014. I rated the ... Read more

This was my 10th cruise and my first with NCL. What a beautiful ship. Great food, great something for every age group to enjoy. Loved the more relaxed feel of freestyle cruising. Will certainly be back. I didn't the first week with my ... Read more

My wife and I love this itinerary as you stop at 4 ports on the 7 days. This is our 3rd time doing it and looking forward to it again real soon. The food was GREAT in both the restaurant and the buffet, and the Reuben is to die for in ... Read more

My Getaway Review Cabin: #11539. See below for notes. Entertainment: Phenomenal. I saw Burn the Floor (best show ever!) in the Getaway Theatre, Illusionarium (magic show done in a play-like format with very talented magicians). Also ... Read more

My family of 5 (3 adults, 2 kids) just returned from the Norwegian sailing Jan 29-Feb5 and had a great time. To get straight to the point, the Getaway was a great ship, with everything you expect from a cruise ship and more and it made ... Read more

I specifically chose this cruise for the sole purpose of visiting the beaches on islands I hadn't yet been to - especially to see Norwegian's newest island "Harvest Caye". Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate. It poured ... Read more

This was a get together with girls from the past, for total relaxation. Our halfway point to meet was New Orleans and we sailed from there. We lucked into a huge bargain on a Suite (12512) & thoroughly enjoyed the space & extra's ... Read more

This cruise left out of New Orleans. Embarkation was a little lengthy but not too bad. We were six adults in three cabins all on the 11th floor. Cabins 11628 and 11626 are to be avoided at all cost! They are situated directly below the ... Read more

Took the January 29th - February 5th cruise to the Western Caribbean. Ports of call were Roatan, Harvest Cay (more on that later), Costa Maya and Cozumel. Thought it would be good to try some new ports, as Cozumel is the only port I've ... Read more

The crew on Norwegian Getaway were very friendly and courteous. Many places to dine and our cabin was always neatly cleaned and stocked with essentials. Both embarkation and disembarkation were very easy. Plenty of entertainment and lots ... Read more

My first time on the Gem. This is a very nice ship. Just the right size. The food in Le Bistro is worth the price of the cruise. The NCL dance team was outstanding. Amazing choreography. Excellent, excellent service all around...from ... Read more

This ship is definitely not for kids. Yes it has slides and pools but the slides are a pain to find the entrance to get on and unless your kid can touch in over 5' of water and knows how to swim there is no pool for them other than an area ... Read more

Embarkation: We flew into Orlando on Friday night before the cruise and stayed in a hotel near Orlando airport. We had a private car pick us up to take us to Port Canaveral. The car was on time and very comfortable. We got to Port ... Read more

Went to relax. Note that library/game room is very tiny! Much smaller than any other ship I have been one. Usually there are two rooms, but this is only one and room for only 4 small card tables. Smoke in casino bothersome to ... Read more

We were treated royally by the staff of the Gem from the time we embarked until we disembarked on our 10 day cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. NCL clearly aims to please all guests and created a relaxed friendly, fun atmosphere. Through ... Read more
